Day 4, Time to choose a Plan

A travel blog entry by juliocamperio

... beer. The papas are boiled in very salty water with the skin and served like that, but its the mojo that is the important part of the meal. We then walked down the paseo by the sea for a while, on the left we had the buildings and moutains, and on the right we had the vast sea filled with ships, tankers, cargo ships and three oil drilling platforms under construction, so that scenery was not the best.

Day 1, cont., Apartment Suspense

A travel blog entry by juliocamperio

... about the apartment, he gave me a pair of keys and I gave him rent for this month. The way he smiled at me is what made me doubt this whole thing, it was as if he knew something I did not. Once in Las Palmas the taxi driver dropped me on the right street but the building number was nowhere to be found, and then he drove off. I walked back some 20-25 meters and found the correct building. The moment of truth was if either of the keys worked with the front door. If ...

... Vegueta. The architecture is Spanish and Canarian. Unfortunately, the Museum of the Canaries closed at 2 pm (on a Saturday!), but I did visit the Cathedral of Santa Ana and Columbus House Museum. Christopher Columbus stopped and stayed in the Canary Islands on each of his four expeditions, to provision his ships and prepare for his voyages of discovery of the New World (what he thought was India).

Atlantic Antics - Ocean Voyage Part 1

... a book perhaps. however just occasionally things go wrong, like mechanical failure with the autopilot. On my shift it decide to sail only in one direction. You can imagine it would be difficult to get to the Caribbean sailing in circles.

Like from Gibraltar there is a lot of banging on the boat. The further we get from land the less crashing occurs and the more other sounds keep you up. In low ...

Cuckoo in the Canary Islands

A travel blog entry by calmckee

... first stopped at a little restaurant along the coast that overlooked the water. What a hidden gem that was. Afterward we went down to the pier where the ferry to Tenerife comes in. Then we moved on and grabbed a drink a little further along before heading up to the lighthouse to watch the sunset. On the way back we were hoping to catch the en of the Madrid/Chelsea game but it was too late. We went for dinner that night and ...

    This Hotel is easily the best one in Puerto Rico great staff, clean rooms fab views and a quiet location the only thing wrong is you have to check out at 12pm which when you have a flight at 2am the following morning is not so great but the reason is it isTHE hotel everyone wants to stay in

    Excellent

    from

    Stayed there AOA and were delighted with location, cleanliness, staff, restaurant, everything was just perfect. We liked it so much we are booked again for May 2006. Although it is costing us more this time we don't care. l have been to Puerto Rico 6 times and these are the best apts yet.

    We had a Suite... fantastic

    from

    We are just back from a week in Puerto Rico and i thought it was excellent. We booked the Suite, only by chance as it must have been a cancellation and it was fantastic.Our tranfer time was about 45 min and we didnt have any other stop off as we were on the bus with the guests from Marina Suites and we were first. On arrival they do ask for the €150 deposit, but we knew that anyway so we were prepared. They took our passports and kept them overnight. We asked ourselves for the safety deposit box we had to pay €14 euro and then €12 euro deposit so €26 in total. we got back the deposit on departure.. The suites are very big and well equipped. We had two rooms,one with a double bed and one with two single beds. Loads of wardrobe space, two showers and an nice kitchenette with living room space. It was spotlessly clean. We had a welcome bottle of water in the fridge when we arrived. The suite was no 3 and other guests we spoke to said that suite no 1 is noisy from the kitchen, which i can imagine as they get the kitchen and dining area ready early even though the restaurant isnt open till 7pm.

    Great views great location

    from

    Just returned from a week with my daughter at the El Graco apartments and I have to say, that after reading all the reviews I could before I went, I was left feeling a little dissapointed. BUT...I have never stayed in self catering apartments before,and, the general opinion from other guests there was that this is a good place to stay as apartments go. Perhaps after years on the road in top hotels I was expecting too much.

    Beautiful hotel shame about the noise

    from

    Arrived at 4am sunday morning,tired after one of the longest transfers we have ever had.These apartments were booked late deal through a reputable travel company.First shock was you had to pay an extra 150 euros(approx 100)deposit before you were given the keys to your room there was no prior knowledge of this.The room was massive had microwave,grill hob,perculator,toaster, fridge...and a kettle.We had room 118 it is an end apartment on the first floor it has the largest balcony of them all with sun most the day looking out on the roof top garden there were two sunbeds on the balcony and table and chairs.The hotel has two pools a small one and another one a bit bigger with a pool bar.The room was kept really clean and the staff very friendly..you could put up a no disturb sign if you wanted a lie in.The apartments are in a great location just across the road from puerto rico beach..when they have re -done the bar and resturant and laundry room it will be a great place to stay.However our break was ruined because of the hotel building work going on,at 8.30 am almost everyday..drilling and cutting blocks(nightmare)so we had sadly little chance to enjoy a sunbathing session,or peaceful breakfast on our balcony.You are close to a handful of eating places.there is a lovely bar with a fantastic view(harbour lights)serving fosters beer overlooking the sea and harbour.Head right from the hotel dodge the guys sellling cameras go up the stairs its next to the chemist.also there is a very popular ? eating place called oscars pretty with candles on the tables...but wow the prices..forget it if you are saving your euros.If you are booked to stay at the el greco be warned about the temporary discomfort and it was not possible to keep the room on past 12 oclock mid-day..a long time to walk the resort..prior to a 2 am flight.

    Absolutely Fantastic!!

    My friend and I booked our holiday 72 hours before we flew to Gran Canaria. We paid approx £160 for an allocation on arrival holiday - we didn't even know what area of Gran Canaria we would be placed at.

    Lovely apartments

    from

    i stayed at the el greco apartments for a week over christmas with my partner and 6 year old daughter, the apartments were very clean well equipt and in a great location. the beach was 20 seconds away there were lots of bars and shops nearby and plenty of things for us to do. the staff spoke very good english and were very helpful, there were 2 pools in the hotel one which was heated. there were 2 pool tables to keep the children entertained and the pool snack bar served excellent food at very low prices. i was very pleased with my stay at the el greco and am looking forward to going back this year.
